wildatheart Posted March 17, 2014 Share Posted March 17, 2014 I am trying this again. I tried it two years ago and went off the tracks after 10 days when my husband came home from a month away. I need to get rid of eczema that has taken over my back and is starting on my chest. That is my main goal, although weight loss would be nice too. I have been practicing intermittent fasting for almost a year and have lost 40 lbs. I LOVE the intermittent fasting lifestyle. I am already a healthy eater (lean Nourishing Traditions, although I tend to limit grains as I do not even like them), but need to get rid of even organic sugar. With intermittent fasting I can eat whatever I want, I just have to do it within a 5 hour window. This has been great for a year, but I have plateaued big time--been the same weight for a good two months now. I *could* be happy at my current size 12, but I'd love to lose another 25 lbs to get to a size 8. I say all that to ask: do I need to give up my intermittent fasting lifestyle to do a Whole 30? I don't even know what eating all day feels like anymore, and am afraid I would actually put on weight. Like absolutely terrified. It's been too much work for me to get this far. Any info/advice is appreciated! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
